Cooking instructions

In the kitchen: 
Soak the breadcrumbs in the milk.
Wash and dice the mushrooms. Peel and finely dice the shallots and mix with the mushrooms. In a pan, cook the mushrooms and shallots until soft and remove from the pan. 
Mix the sausage meat and mushrooms together. 
Squeeze the breadcrumbs to remove any excess milk and add to the stuffing; finish with the egg and Cognac. Mix all the ingredients together well. 
Stuff the chicken with the mixture, truss it with kitchen string and fix it firmly on the rotisserie spit. 

At the barbecue: 
Set-up the rotisserie motor on the barbecue. 
Prepare the barbecue for indirect heat, around 180°C. 
If using a 57 cm charcoal barbecue, you will need 1/2 a chimney starter of lit Weber briquettes. 
If roasting on a charcoal barbecue you can use a drip pan to capture all of the juices from the meat. Simply position the drip pan on the charcoal grate with the coals on either side. 
Position the rotisserie spit on the barbecue, inserting one end into the motor, turn the rotisserie on and close the lid. 
Roast the chicken for around 90 minutes or until the core temperature of the meat has reached 75°C. You can check this with a Weber Instant-Read or iGrill Thermometer.
